The Chanda Band Staygrahis also discussed with people how criminalization of politics and unregulated & opaque political funding work in tandem.

People were made aware of the fact that fielding of 21 candidates with criminal charges, that includes 9 candidates with serious criminal charges is a pointer to the consequences when political funding becomes opaque.

These criminal candidates inducted to the party do not come with a motto of ‘service before self’ but to seek returns on their investments. The investments which they made as a part of the funding for the party to get the ticket to contest elections.
